What Google Calendar Features Are Available

Google Calendar is a calendar that allows you to create and share schedules with other people. It’s an excellent tool for managing your schedule, staying on top of upcoming events, and collaborating with colleagues. Google Calendar offers a wide range of features — here are some of the most popular:

Importing Events and Calendars

Suppose you’re already using another calendar service like Microsoft Outlook or Apple iCal. In that case, Google Calendar can import events from those accounts, so you don’t have to enter them into your Google Calendar manually. You can also import calendars from other Google users.

Integrating With Other Applications

You can integrate your Google Calendar with other applications such as Microsoft Outlook and Apple Mail. This allows you to sync your events from these applications into your Google Calendar to see them all in one place. When you create an event in Outlook or Apple Mail, it will also appear automatically in your Google Calendar. You can also add events from other sources to your Google calendar by connecting it with an RSS feed reader or a social media site like Facebook or Twitter.

Sending Email Event Reminders

Google Calendar can send email reminders about appointments, events and birthdays. You can even choose which days of the week you want to receive these reminders — for example, every Monday or every day — so that you’re always aware of what’s happening in your schedule.

How To Add Travel Time To Google Calendar

Google Calendar lets you add travel time to appointments to see how much time you have between appointments. For how to add travel time to Google Calendar, click on the arrival time in the appointment window and click “Add Travel Time” in the drop-down menu. If you have multiple places listed in your calendar, choose whether or not you want to add travel time for each place individually or all at once.

Create New Appointments from Email

Get a lot of emails from coworkers asking about meeting times. You can use Google Calendar to make it easier for them by creating new appointments automatically when they send an email message with the subject line “Meeting request.” You will still need to check the email manually, but once it’s been sent, Google Calendar will create an event for you with details about who requested the meeting and what time they suggested it. You can accept or decline these meetings as usual.

Adding Shortcuts to Your Calendar

You can add shortcuts to your calendar, which will open up links in a new tab or window when clicked. For example, if you’re scheduling an appointment for someone, you can send them the link to their appointment instead of typing out the address into their browser. This is a great way to send people to specific web pages when they click on an event in your calendar.

Colour Coding Your Events

Suppose you have multiple calendars or different colour coding for specific events or tasks. In that case, Google Calendar has a feature that allows you to assign colours based on these categories. You can also set up colour-coded events as repeating events so that they always appear with their assigned colour—no matter what day of the week they fall on!

Customizing Your Calendar’s View

The default view for Google Calendar is a daily overview of your schedule, with appointments and events displayed in the order they occur. However, you can switch to other views, including weekly, monthly, and plan views. In each view, you can click the edit icon to adjust how far back or forward in time you want to see your schedule.
